Over 80 percent of new prison inmates are incarcerated for some "offense" related to dope. End the "war on drugs" and the US prison population goes down drastically.
Not to mention recent renewed claims from Mexico officials that the CIA is "running" the drug trade with the idea that no more drugs means no more need for those individuals from the CIA being involved.

Well, looks like the ATT is done, for now.

Let's stay involved, so we do this well in November...


...and thanks for keeping it civil and focused, folks.

But the political reality is that next year either Obama or Romney is going to bne president. There is absolutely no question of that.


Failing to support Romney helps Obama get re-elected.
I, myself, shall never vote for the lesser-of-two evils. Would anyone prefer to marry the lesser-of-two evils,
or go into business with the lesser-of-two evils, or choose between Gonorrhea or Syphilis as the lesser-of-two-evils?
Evil is evil. Period. Either way, the lesser or the greater, the nation is screwed with these two!

Let's not forget, as others have pointed out,

the general election isn't just for the president.

Let's start talking up some "Naughty and Nice"

lists of congressmen and senators, so we all

can preserve the checks and balances which will

keep either candidate from destroying our

Constitution.


Yanno, wouldn't it be funny,(by which I mean sad)

if 120 million people voted for "none of the above"

in November?

The truth is, Ron Paul couldn't get elected dog catcher, even if no one ran against him. The American people perceive him, rightly or wrongly, as a fanatical extremist.

The next president is gong to be Barack Obama or Mitt Romney.

There is no question whatsoever of that.

So if you're not supporting Romney, you're helping re-elect Obama!

\Deny it if you wish, but facts are facts, whether we like them or not.

Now, now, don't be so hasty; a rouge meteor or raging pandemic could take them both out.
Try to look for the bright side.

Ive had this discussion before but Im not going to have it again. I will simply say I am voting for Ron Paul regardless of what anyone else may think and when Romney turns out to do the same damned things as Obama and Bush before him and Clinton before him I will possess ZERO sympathy for the American people.

I wash my hands of them and their issues when they will not help themselves.

(You cannot guilt a Ron Paul supporter into comprimising their values and voting Mittens because we vote for moral, intellectual reasons and NOT because of a letter in front of their name)

Good try though...
